A Banana spider spun a web on the side of my house. It stayed there for several weeks.

This banana spider has been on our back deck for about two weeks now. He is absolutely beautiful with his brilliant colors. I have been photographing him at different times during the day since we found him. We noticed that he makes a new web every other day.

What a gnarly photo - I love it! Great shots!
Great pictures of your spider, but I think it's a "She". The males are usually less than a fourth the size of the more colorful females. The Black and Yellow Argiope, or Yellow Garden Spider, is a common inhabitant of home gardens throughout most of the US. Fortunately they aren't particularly dangerous to healthy individuals.
Excuse me but aren't these lil guys deadly? Any spider I see here in tn is gonna be a dead one. Don't do spiders!
I like to touch the web and make the spider do his thing. He will start shaking the web. I think this is the way he catches his prey.
